Frugal Science – Lecture by Dr. Manu Prakash
Dr. Manu Prakash of Stanford University leads the way in devising low-cost solutions to scientific dilemmas. With our planet literally teeming with problems, it’s time to take cost constraints into serious consideration. As physicists and engineers, we know how to make stuff. We use these skills (and field work) to design solutions for extremely resource constrained settings, especially in the field of global health. Our work in this area extends from field diagnostics to hand on science education.
